Publisher's Description

This is the true story of Ora-Jay and Irene Eash, Amish farmers from northwest Montana whose lives changed in an instant when a semi-truck struck the family buggy, killing their two young daughters.

After the accident, the couple turned to their Amish community for comfort, but they remained haunted by the thought that they might not see their girls again in heaven. Would their deeds be good enough? Eventually Ora-Jay and Irene learned that grace—not works—was enough to ensure their place in eternity. But with that knowledge came the realization that they could no longer live in an Amish community that didn’t share this precious belief. Could they sever their connection to the Amish family they loved?

This is the story of their journey to the hope that is heaven, a hope stronger than the loss of children, family, and a way of life. Fans of Amish fiction will appreciate such a real-life look into the Amish community, co-written by bestselling author Tricia Goyer, and readers of all kinds will resonate with this tale of courage, resilience, and the redemption found in the grace of Jesus.

    I loved how they searched for the true God and how they discovered God's love and grace through their circumstances. I'm sure it must have been beyond difficult to not have their family support when they decided to leave the RULES behind and follow the WORD of GOD. Great story that was not easy to live.

    I learned much about the rules and laws of the Amish. Ora Jay and Irene faced much opposition from the Amish community because of their believing what the whole Bible says of Jesus and His teachings. Because they did not give in to the oppositions, Jesus blessed them over and over.

    This is such an interesting story. It is amazing all of the things these people had to go through and yet Jesus meets them where they are. I love how open they are to the leading of the Spirit. Thank you for being so honest.

    Ora Jay and Irene Eash suffered a tragedy that no parent should have to endure. The death of their two young daughters due to an accident.

    It was through soul searching and reading the scriptures that lead the Eashs to leave their previous Amish belief and trust in Jesus. They even left their Indiana home and moved to the wilderness of Northwest Montana.

    I admired how they stepped out in faith, trusting the Lord to lead them. The road was not an easy one but they held steadfast. The joy of knowing Salvation is through Jesus Christ alone was worth it all.

    What an amazing family. There were many trials to overcome. It wasnt an easy road; yet they trusted Jesus Christ through it all.

    Plain Faith is a book I highly recommend.

    Book Summary: This is the true story of Ora-Jay and Irene Eash, Amish farmers from northwest Montana whose lives changed in an instant when a semi-truck struck the family buggy, killing their two young daughters. After the accident, the couple turned to their Amish community for comfort, but they remained haunted by the thought that they might not see their girls again in heaven. Would their deeds be good enough? Eventually Ora-Jay and Irene learned that grace---not works---was enough to ensure their place in eternity. But with that knowledge came the realization that they could no longer live in an Amish community that didn't share this precious belief. Could they sever their connection to the Amish family they loved? This is the story of their journey to the hope that is heaven, a hope stronger than the loss of children, family, and a way of life. Fans of Amish fiction will appreciate such a real-life look into the Amish community, co-written by bestselling author Tricia Goyer, and readers of all kinds will resonate with this tale of courage, resilience, and the redemption found in the grace of Jesus.

    Review: This is a well written book about an amazingly tender, sad, joyful and tragic story. I loved the switching back and forth between Ora-Jay and Irene. Trisha Goyer did a remarkable job of keeping their voices while working with them to write this book. I loved their honesty in telling of their leaving the Amish life. It was beautiful and tragic insight into the Amish life. I came to respect their love and care for their families and friends. It truly painted a fair and loving account of their community and the difficulty leaving that way of life. I have read other books about leaving the Amish life which demonstrated the challenges of leaving along with being under the ban, but this story was mature and more tragic because they were leaving for a greater life and desperately wanted their family and friends to enter into this greater life. I enjoyed everything about these people and found them to be open and honest. It seems to me it would be a privilege to know them!

    I would like to thank Net Galley and Zondervan Non-Fiction for allowing me to read and review this book in return for a free copy and I was never asked to write a favorable review by anyone.
